wrentham accident 1-5-21

A woman escaped serious injuries in a single-car accident on Taunton Street Tuesday night, according to police. Icy road conditions are suspected.

WRENTHAM — An area woman escaped serious injury Tuesday when the vehicle she was driving crashed on Taunton Street.

Police Chief Bill McGrath said icy conditions may have contributed to the crash, which occurred about 4:50 p.m. on a hill near Wrentham State Forest.

The driver, a 49-year-old woman from North Attleboro, was taken to Sturdy Hospital in Attleboro, McGrath said.

The car sustained heavy front-end damage.

The cause of the crash is under investigation “but I’ll bet the icy road surface was a factor,” McGrath said in a statement.

“Thankfully, the lady driving the car wasn’t injured seriously,” he said.

Sanders were called out after the crash.

McGrath urged drivers to exercise caution during inclement weather and said the all-wheel or four-wheel drive features in many cars are no match for icy roads.
